Re: There is no data justification
I'm not so sure that's discriminatory.
The law and precedent is very clear on it - it is.
So it should be either:
1. The way it is in most of Europe where BOTH parents have to jointly apply for the child passport (unless there is a specific court decision giving one parent sole custody).
2. One parent should be entitled to apply and either one of the parents or guardians of the underage person should have absolutely identical rights regardless of do they have something dangling between their legs or not.
